Exposure allows you to search your metadata to quickly find specific images using the "Filter by metadata" field. Enter the camera make, ISO, or copyright data and only images with metadata that matches your search will be shown.
This article applies to Alien Skin Exposure X2 and later versions. Exposure X and earlier do allow metadata search.
